Mazeppa, MN St. Paddy's Workshop

A little over two years ago was the first time we made the trek to Mike Meyer's shop in Mazeppa, Minnesota, and the first time we had hands-on training from a true sign painter. We had been self-taught until then, and the things we learned and people we met really set us off on the right path. Two years later, and with some backing from The Arts Partnership, we were back in the Midwest's sign painting Mecca! We spent 4 days learning new techniques, meeting new people, and soaking up all the knowledge we could. It was amazing to look back at how far we've come in those two years, and once again the wealth of knowledge being shared was incredible! We're so glad to be able to continue this trade and tradition, and to bring some new (old!) knowledge home with us. The community of supportive and talented sign painters out there is energizing to be around, and to be able to watch veteran letterers exercise their trade is truly humbling. Here's some pictures from the workshop!
